Rashad Evans was recently interviewed by MMAWeekly Radion anout Saturday's showdown with Phil Davis.
“Of course I’m in his head," said Evans. "Because Phil Davis knows a few things and he knows no matter what, I’m a better wrestler than him. He can win an NCAA championship or whatever, but he knows if I was in that weight class that year he wouldn’t have won anything."
“When it comes to MMA wrestling, he’s definitely not a better wrestler when it comes to that. That bothers him and it actually makes him a little bit afraid as well.”
“When he gets hit on his feet and he can’t go to his safety zone, which is on the ground, then he starts going into panic mode."
“When you start going into panic mode, you start thinking about ‘oh my God I’m getting hit, oh my God I’m losing the fight, oh my God there isn’t anywhere in this fight where I can go where I’m safe, let me find a way out of this.’ Then you start looking for your way out.”
“I’m not worried about getting taken down. I feel pretty comfortable on my back. I feel like there’s really nobody that can hold me down. I feel like I can get up on anybody, and I have gotten up on almost everybody I go with, so I’m not really worried about being taken down. Cause if he takes me down, he’s going to have to keep taking me down because I’m going to keep getting back up.”
